Yes. He may have a lot of wealth, but his attitude and manners are often reminiscent of those

of someone who had been brought up in the streets.

That would be behaving like the Donald.

I wonder what makes you think so.

Have we now become a Police State?.......................................

The link below is only one among a whole series of articles showing that we
are now living in A POLICE STATE! What was happening in Germany nearly
a hundred years ago under Hitler is taking place here today.

Most of us were unaware that our police departments have already been
militarized from coast to coast, until Sep. 2011, when Occupy Wall Street
began their peaceful protest in the USA. The violence with which the police
treated these non-violent protesters was shocking to most people. Only then
did the realization hit us: Our police are now militarized.

The American people had no say whatsoever in whether or not we wanted to have
our police departments militarized. The American people were not consulted. So,
who authorized a militarized police? What was the reason for its creation? We
already have the strongest military in the world, do we also need a militarized
police force here at home, and, if so, for what purpose?

It must have taken decades to have the police departments of our whole
country militarized. The American people, as stated above, were not consulted.
It had been done secretly. Why the secrecy? Take a guess!!!

For other similar articles, just google: Is USA now a Police State? You will have
millions of articles to read

Besides the 2 links above, there is a whole series of similar articles in any search engine.
Just write in "militarization of police in America."

Warren's suggestion that Wells Fargo CEO Stumpf be criminally investigated got results: Justice Dept

has begun preliminary investigations of Wells Fargo Bank.

Great for Elizabeth Warren! There should be more people like her in the House and
the Senate.

I hope this is just the beginning. God knows our big corporate businesses need
a thorough house-cleaning job -- from top to bottom, and from inside out!

Did you see this on TV yesterday? Warren saying to the CEO of Wells Fargo: The only way to change

Wall Street was to put in jail all those executives guilty of massive fraud.

She is one of those politicians with real guts. Bernie is another. I know
there are others, but who are less well known, or not yet known Deat all.
Main Stream Media keeps doing its best to keep them unknown.

Let's all help to elect more of them. We need more of them by the tons
to bring about integrity and change into this nation of ours!

To do the above we need more Democrats voting Progressives into office.
We also have to use much stronger measures to overcome Republicans
cheating at Election time. Half-way measures won't help at all. They are
cheating now, more than ever.

France just became the first country to ban plastic silverware, plates and

cups. France also made it a requirement by law that supermarkets
must donate unsold food to charities in February (instead of throwing
it away).

I'd bet we'd be among the last ones to have such humanitarian feelings
for the have-nots. The Corporatists have too much power here, and
they have a penchant for making the poor people suffer more.

The only reason Hillary is winning the Dem. Primaries is because the Dem. Establishment

people are doing their best to help her along with their crooked ways. Perhaps many of them
are in her political debt? She has had so much experience in her long political life - and a lot
of it seems to have been experience of the unpleasant negative type.

The only presidential candidate who is a decent human being and still running is Bernie. I
hope he stays in. If it hadn't been for all the dirty tricks played against him, he would have
easily been the Dem. Front Runner today.

For the above reasons I would like to see Bernie win, even if it should be only at the expense
of Hillary's coming into difficulties - brought on herself by herself - such as the result of her
present FBI investigation, or the exposure of her Goldman Sachs speech, or whatever else.

Yet, if she should win the Dem. Primaries, I would vote for her against any Republican. The
reason is simple - I'd like to help prevent still greater misery and more unnecessary deaths
for the vast majority of the American people by doing what I can to fight the greater evil.

If some find the above crazy, my answer is: These are crazy times. And that is WHAT IS
taking place right now. What else better can one do than play along with it -- until these
times change? No situation on earth is permanent. The life of our planet, itself, is only a
temporary one.
